I'm having trouble trying to figure out if i should save stuff to my Gdrive or my verizon cloud.
A couple things I've noticed, (bare with me here i'm not really good with comp stuff)

verizon cloud on my PC won't allow me to play,watch or open files. It does allow me to on my android phone though.

Gdrive also did not allow me to open a MS Office document that i really needed at the moment. That's when i gave up on it. I do, however, enjoy the fact that i can access it easier through my PC Chrome/Google web browser. (more convenient)

Basically my question is: Which one is better? (pros and cons)

Fantastic real time editing by multiple users

about Google Drive and LibreOffice, Microsoft Office Suite · ·

Google docs is so good because it can handle real time editing by multiple users. It also stacks good basic editing tools, but lack some more advanced editing features which is easy to do in for example MS Office or Libra Office..
